Turistas arriban a la isla para festejar la Independencia de México
ISLA MUJERES, 15 de septiembre.-Leer más... The weather improved significantly on Sunday and an increase in the number of tourists arriving was noted. The beaches were full of vacationers and the restaurants and bars were offering attractive discounts and specials. Hotel occupancy on Sunday was estimated to be 50 percent, and there were many Mexican tourists visiting for the day. This is a long holiday weekend, called a "puente" which literally means 'bridge'.
The Grito of Dolores is a Cry of Independence, from 1810 when Hidalgo called for the people to revolt from Spain. Currently, every Sept. 15 around 11pm, the Mayors (and Governors and President), ring a bell from a balcony or rooftop above the town square, and give a traditional speech which includes the names of heroes of the war for independence. This followed by a threefold shout of ¡Viva México!, more bell ringing, and waving of the Mexican flag, and then they may play the National Anthem.

Sea Glass Visions - Sea Glass Jewelry Crafts Sea Pottery · This
is some rare and interesting sea glass. It's crackled sea glass that
was found in California. This is the explanation that was given to me
about how it is created...crackle sea glass usually 'happens' when glass
objects end up in trash fires or campfires before ending up in the Sea.
The actual crackle happens when hot glass is submerged/covered in cold
water...the surface of the glass "crackles" then refuses while the glass
is still hot.
